UNA Northern California Division
The Northern California region has had a long standing history with the United Nations. In 1945, the region was the birthplace of the UN when the charter was signed in the heart of San Francisco. Our region has a reputation for being socially aware and globally active. Northern California is home to some of the most active NGOs and corporations in the world. With such cutting edge developments in a region that sets the trend for the rest of the world, the UNA NorCal serves to provide the public with information and activities surrounding the United Nations and global affairs. With 11 chapters, UNA NorCal spans over half the state: from Sacramento to San Francisco and Sonoma to Santa Cruz, the UNA has a powerful presence in the West Coast enclave of progress and global awareness.
